Thanks for this tip! It worked for me, EXCEPT the basemap won't clip exactly to my shapefile. I am attaching a screenshot so you can see what I mean! Any suggestions?
I think that might be normal raster behavior. Though, I am not fully certain.

Is there a way to export out the result so it can be used for a maptile project?
pmchaffie,can you post a screenshot of the problem you're seeing with Basemap Layer clipping and layout?
pmchaffie,Try as I might I was unable to duplicate the problem here on 10.0 SP2. Can you submit your repro case to support through the usual channels, and I can pick it up from there?
Choose the view menu, choose Data Frame options.At the bottom of the Data Frame Tab are "Clip Options"Choose Clip to shape then click the Specify shape button, on the next screen you can choose the layer you want to use as the shape.Hope that helps
this is from the print preview screen. the clip is being performed on a county map (shp) from the census - it works on everything but basemaps, and i get the same result with any of the choices. the second one is the layout screen.
